A local branch of Promedica24, Europe’s largest provider of live-in care services for vulnerable and older people, is celebrating its 5th year of supporting families across North Yorkshire and Lancashire.
Gary Derbyshire (pictured), who set up the North Yorkshire and Lancashire branch of Promedica24, is renewing his franchise agreement with the company for a further five years so he can continue supporting people to live independently in the comfort of their own homes.
Having launched in 2016, Gary brings Promedica24’s trusted live-in care services to people across North Yorkshire, Lancashire and its surrounding communities.
Gary said: “The last year has been a very challenging time for everyone, including many families across my local community, who since the start of the pandemic, have been worried more than ever about the health and safety of their vulnerable loved ones.
“As more and more people have started exploring care model alternatives to care homes, I’ve been able to provide them with a genuine and affordable solution. The last couple of months have been particularly busy, filled by ‘non-stop’ care assessments and people wanting to learn more about our live-in care services.
“It’s encouraging to know that I’m giving my community a choice and enabling people that require some additional professional support to remain in their own homes and live the lifestyles they like and deserve.”
Gary said that Promedica24 offered him an attractive franchise agreement where he could concentrate on using his skills in business development and nurturing relationships in his community.
The Promedica24 UK franchise opportunity launched in 2015 and currently has 14 franchisees delivering live-in care services across the UK.
